The Sustained Effort Necessary to Induce Faith

The Eighth Step toward Riches

PERSISTENCE IS AN ESSENTIAL FACTOR in the procedure of 

transmutting DESIRE into its monetary equivalent.  The basis of

persistence is the POWER OF WILL.

When men  use willpower and persistence is combined and placed back of

desires to ensure the attainment of their objectives, there is no stopping them.

This is PERSISTENCE.

Only a few carry on DESPITE all opposition, until they attain their goal. These

few obtain the fortunes that others simply dream of receiving.  Persistence is

the quality to the character of man what carbon is to steel.

Spasmodic, or occasional, effort to apply the rules will be of no value to you.  To 

get RESULTS, you must apply all of the rules until their application becomes 

a fixed habit with you.  In no other way can you develop the necessary "money

consciousness."  Without PERSISTENCE, you will be defeated, even before you 

start.  With PERSISTENCE you will win.

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PERSISTENCE

"EVERY FAILURE BRINGS WITH IT THE SEED OF AN EQUIVALAENT ADVANTAGE"

Those who have won have not accepted defeat as being anything more than temporary.

They are the ones whose DESIRES are so PERSISTENTLY APPLIED that defeat

is finally changed into victory.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for each of us to learn and

grow into the people we were meant to  be.

Love to all
